The Ninja Warriors (ニンジャウォーリアーズ) is a beat-'em-up originally developed by Taito for the arcades. It was brought to the PC Engine in 1989 exclusively for Japan.


Playable characters are two androids called Kunoichi (female ninja, red color) and Ninja (male ninja, blue color). Both characters play identically.
